Where I live, cryovaced beef ribs are cheap. They don’t look like they have a lot of meat on them, but I usually get full on 3. This rack of ribs cost $9.77 and it fed my husband and I. There were 3 ribs left over that I will eat for breakfast.
I use an electric smoker (LOVE it), turn it on 220 for 5.5 hours.
Soak 1/2 cups of you favorite wood chips, I used these this time. It is a mixture of different wood types. (I don’t like a heavy smoke flavor, so I only use 1/2 cup once in the beginning.) Here is a link to a variety pack of wood chips. Great way to test out different flavors.
1 part Smoked Paprika
1 part Chili Powder
1 part Sea Salt
You can use tablespoons, cups or how ever much you want to make. The recipe is equal amounts of those 3 ingredients. I make a bunch and store it in a shaker.
Sprinkle ribs generously with rub mix.
Place in pan bone side down.
Put in smoker.
Add wood chips. If you like lots of smokey flavor you can add more chips after 2 hours.
After about 5 hours they are done!

I like to smoke things in a pan. The juice and fat stays in the pan and it keeps the smoker cleaner. It took me a long time to find a pan that fits. This Large Enamalware Roasting pan fits in the smoker perfectly. The outside measurements are 13.5 x 11 inches.
